A Cool Kid!


I am assuming because my son loves BASEBALL to no end that we are supposed to be a apart of any and every activity there is! Of course it is getting very cold outside and he knows his mom being OUTSIDE in this type of weather will NOT bless me with warmth! LOL

So of course he wants to do INSIDE baseball training so he can be ready for April! He does not care what state…let alone country that we will be living in – he wants to be ready!

I advised him just as he is making all of these millions of preperations TO BE READY for Spring Training for Baseball that he needs to make just as MANY preperations to be ready via his life for Christ upon his return!

Oh gosh he giggled so loud and said Mom, you always find a way to put God in everything that I do and it is pretty cool! OF COURSE THAT MADE ME PROUD and thanked the Lord for guiding me on raising this AMAZING little boy properly by myself!

My Baby’s Tastebuds….


I have to admit that some days his after school snacks are a break between healthy and unhealthy…… I hate to say unhealthy because he does have a variety of all of the food groups….. We are ALWAYS RIPPING AND RUNNING with his activities and cooking at home is ummmm….. like a 2 day a weekk thing! This boy has something to do EVERYDAY of the week literally…..

I do know that we are cutting out the bread…. well at least he can have bread twice a week but that is it…. He eats tons of fruit…. tons of Gatorade… tons of SPECIAL K Products and even a great deal of protein bars….. However, Wish I had the money to just build a chain of gyms for kids….I know that I would make a killing because at least 85 percent of kids in AMERICA is overweight – INCLUDING MINE!

Crazy thing is that he is in shape like he weighed like a skinny kid….

From martial arts…. he is alright… From soccer..he is alright… From baseball…he is alright… From basketball…he is alright..

I should have went ahead and signed him up for swimming – I know that would have SERIOUSLY helped us both shed some pounds….

Just even THINKING about putting this boy in another activity gives me a panic attack! LOL – It is just plumb exhausting and in a minute… His part time nanny will become his mother because I am tired!

It isnt too late but who wants to pay $300.00 for yet ANOTHER ACTIVITY! I already have to buy another instrument for this kid….. I tell him that he costs too much and needs to get a job… His reply is mom I did ask you to work but you said that I am too youn! UGGHH….. ” HUSH IT BOY ”

Always A Sacrifice –


Another COLD night out with my little man with his baseball games… I have been fighting the cold weather via my son’s activities since he was 5 years old and I thought that since he is NOW 10 that things would be a piece a cake or at least a skinny little piece of pie! Nope – cold is cold and frigid weather is still and will always be frigid weather!!!.. LOL

Whew and I thought that going to Boy Scouts 2 times a week staying out for 3 hour evenings was torture – but GEESH – all of these amazing activities that I seem to have to place him in by desire and  due to the lack of Christian Male GENUINE role models that has the DNA of consistency – I almost HAVE TO DO IT and keep him busy as a bee as well as busy as a beaver….that keeps chucking away at activities!

I was tired….frustrate with personal things but through it all… at least during “his moment” I could not allow him to see me sweat….. but I tell you raising kids alone is hard but Mothers raising sons….whew Jesus – very semi difficult because to me the whole process is a tad bit sensitive! Daughters and Fathers / Sons and Fathers were matches made in Heaven evidently and it shows up in relationships. It does not matter how amazing mothers are – fathers are always missed in a child’s life when they are absent…. It is how God made it – It is how God intended it …so shall it be so!

At least his team won tonight in the 45 degree weather right? At least we get to come home by 9 pm right? At least we live close to the baseball field right? At least his homework is already complete right? At least I get off work early all week right? At least I did my running around and can come straight home for the next few days right?

With even all of those positives that I stated….it still does not make MY LIFE less busy –

Babbling With My Son –


It’s not what you achieve, it’s what you overcome. That’s what defines who you are…..   Your outlook upon life, your estimate of yourself, your estimate of your value  are largely colored by your environment. Your whole career will be modified,  shaped, molded by your surroundings, by the character of the people with whom  you come in contact every day…

Honestly, I think everyone should experience defeat at least once during their career. You  learn a lot from it!!!   He always tells me what he wants to do in life via his career and I advise him that he needs to find a career to which he his adapted by nature, and then to work hard at  it, is about as near to a formula for success and happiness as the world  provides. One of the fortunate aspects of this formula is that, granted the  right career has been found, the hard work takes care of itself. Then hard work  is not hard work at all.

Toodles!


Welp…. my baby is going to yet another camp for the summer and he is excited AND SO AM I!!! This is the first year that he has been to so many camps but it has been good for both of us…. Alone time for myself and he started feeling more independent….. The only thing he stated was …Mom just dont leave me at a camp for more than 2 weeks! LOL Which I would never do…. because I already know that we BOTH would miss one another way too much!

Sending my son to camp during the summer provides him with chances to expand  his skills, make friends and experience unusual opportunities.

I swear to goodness that I SO LOVE AND ENJOY being a parent to this little boy! He has his days of course but so do I!! LOL This has been a challenging 2012 for us both and we have managed to get through it.. thank you Lord…

 

Anyway……school starts in 3 weeks and we both will be having an extended vacation….. Fall baseball starting… Swim Team, Band and of course Soccer!

Champions!


Welp ,the championship has come and gone and my son feels like a million dollars! These kids played their hearts out and they deserve all of the great the cheers that they obtained on tonight!! They indeed worked so hard to get here! #proudMOM

This has been such a very long season that I must admit that I am soooooooooooooooooo GLAD that it is over! Well, he is still apart of other tournament groups but the weeks of having 3 and 4 games surely is not what I am going to miss!

One thing that I always tell my son is that TEAMWORK makes the DREAMWORK! Go Champions!
